After a couple of weeks of doing promotional work, it’s time to turn my attention to the Toyota Trucks All-Star Week that kicks off next week.
With the regular season behind us, I’m spending my time assessing the past Elite season while turning my focus to the Toyota Trucks All-Star Week coming up Sept. 20 in Decatur, Ill.
Hurricane Isaac delivered another blow to Louisiana and Mississippi, but its residual effects on the Midwest could be a boon to bass fishing.
We kicked off a big week here in Syracuse, N.Y. on Oneida Lake. This is where all the chickens come to roost.
It seems that the entire country is in a major drought right now, and Michigan is no exception.
I just spent a few days with the family kickin’ back at Torch Lake near Traverse City, Mich., a place where the smallmouth grow big and keep you on edge. It was a laid-back family vacation but I still had Oneida on my mind.
Faster doesn’t always mean better when choosing a baitcast reel.
Let me tell you right now that Lake St. Clair is the best smallmouth fishery on the planet. I’m amazed at how the lake gets better each year.
I’ve always preferred larger spinning reels than most anglers. While the majority use the “30” size for their finesse fishing, I’ve leaned toward Quantum’s “40” size for most of my spinning tackle applications.
I’ve spent the last few days at the tackle trade show in Orlando talking to buyers and media from around the world about my sponsors’ new products for 2013. One item that’s getting a lot of attention is the Strike King Dream Shot, a 4-inch soft plastic drop-shot that my nephew Jonathon used to win the Green Bay Challenge two weeks ago. Strike King is one of the few lure companies that puts prototype lures in the hands of their pro staff for testing before releasing them to the public.
